Every facility we look after requires numerous services. As a supply chain consultant, you’ll make sure those services are to the standard we expect, both in terms of quality and value. You’ll manage contracts, develop strong working relationships with suppliers inside and outside the UK and agree on how best to measure performance.
You’ll also plan audits and other governance activities throughout the term of the contract, support cost centre managers at each site and oversee the invoice approval process. Moreover, you’ll play an active role in renewing contracts and encouraging suppliers to work together in a coordinated way.
What makes a great supply chain consultant?
To step into this role you’ll need more than just relevant facilities management experience. You’ll need to be commercially astute with an exhaustive awareness of facilities management activities and service providers.
You should also be well-versed in the latest regulations and procedures, and have integrated risk management experience and a degree level qualification in Facilities Management, Engineering or Purchasing and Supply.
